Case Study: Alacer Gold - Managing Handover in Remote Turkey

6 November, 2020

Anagold Madencilik Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S. is the operator of the world-class Çöpler Gold Mine in Turkey. The Çöpler Mine is located in east-central Turkey in the Erzincan Province, approximately 1,100 kilometers southeast from Istanbul and 550 kilometers east from Ankara, Turkey’s capital city.

In 2015, Alacer Gold adopted RedEye to manage engineering data and drawings during the construction, handover, and operations of their $700 million Çöpler Sulfide Expansion Project (ÇSEP) in North East Turkey.

This involved merging ÇSEP data with legacy Operations data into one easily accessible data “bucket” – a single source of truth for engineering data and drawings. Leveraging asset management technology enables mine owners and operators to optimise O&M, directly impacting control, productivity, and safety.


Engineering Data Management from Expansion Project to Handover and Operations



"We chose RedEye to collect the documentation and the knowledge that was created during the project to handover to operations. It's easy and fast to implement and it's something that we can turn on as a software-as-a-service. Configuration is quick, the learning curve is low and with having access for mobile and any web portal and meant that when we were spread across the world as we were at the start of the project, everyone had access to the information as it was being created and reviewed."

RedEye enables organisations to digitally transform their records, pulling data from multiple locations into a single data management solution. Regardless of the age or history of your asset, records can be transformed into usable information to make data-driven decisions.


Key Takeaways

  • Cloud solutions can work in remote regions. Offline options for mobile interaction are critical
  • Document control processes during a capital project should take into consideration how the information can be maintained post go-live and handover
  • Storing all critical project information in the same location can have significant productivity benefits
